Do you remember when in the show that happens? Maybe Bill or Mickey sat out at some point after New Potato Caboose.

After another listen to 12/7/68, it is definitely two drummers in the first set (up to NPC), but it sounds like there may be only one in the second set.
After Hurts Me Too, Garcia does say they won't do Alligator because "one of our drummers broke down. We can't do it...but we can do Morning Dew, I guess."
That would help explain why the second set's cut so short!

Thanks, LiA--I'm just glad they were able to find spare parts in time for the next show.

I think it's after Hurts Me Too. I don't have time to listen myself, though...
